Seeking to install virtual machine to windows 8 Pro 64bit machine following guidance found at: http://4sysops.com/archives/windows-8-xp-mode-part-1-hy...
Can follow the steps until the “install options” page. The Windows XP CD is in the disk drive but install does not launch. Images are uploaded to Microsoft SkyDrive at: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=52B21D2F3F75A51A!3746 How does one get the operating system on the virtual machine?

I played with Hyper V just after I installed Win8 Pro, but abandoned it when I found that it does not pass audio from the guest to the host.

One solution is to copy the WinXP disk as an ISO file on the host hard drive, and install from there. But I'm sure in the settings somewhere there is the option to tell the guest what DVD drive to use.
